Eileen Flanagan at Valley Green

If you weren’t so discouraged by the evening news, what change would you make in the world?
Do you have a vision of how things could be better?

I envision a world where people power is stronger than corporate power, where sexism and racism no longer keep anyone from fulfilling their whole potential, and where people of good will work together across their differences to create new ways of living that are rooted in connection, justice, and reciprocity with the earth.

My role is to inspire and empower people like you who share this vision, so you can step more fully into your part of making this transformational change a reality. Through my speaking, writing, and online courses, I offer a combination of spiritual grounding, strategic thinking, and hopeful stories to help you move past your fears and toward what is possible, both for you and for the world we all share. So glad you’re here! Welcome.

Renewable 9781631529689_FullCover 3Nov14.indd After twenty years of being a writer, these are the two works I’m most proud of. Each received a Silver Nautilus Book Award, as well as other award recognitions and some pretty cool endorsements (The Dalai Lama and Bill McKibben respectively).

The Wisdom to Know the Difference is about how different people navigate the challenge of the Serenity Prayer, accepting the things we cannot change, and changing those we can.

Renewable is the story of the midlife crisis that led me to become a climate activist. It feels particularly relevant now as more people are feeling called into activism.
